Margaret’s is at the Frontlines of the Mental Health & Homelessness Crisis
Mental illness can be devastating. It is interwoven with homelessness, addiction, marginalization, and isolation. It is complex and often debilitating.
But it doesn’t have to be.
We provide holistic services intended to address the complex nature of the challenges that our clients face.

Margaret’s is in the communities where help is needed the most. We provide a pathway to supportive care while addressing the needs of at-risk homeless individuals living with mental health challenges.
By providing decent, affordable housing and long-term support, our clients:
have a higher chance to integrate into the community
experience a decreased need for hospitalization
improve their overall quality of life
